With such a title one wonders whether this piece, Happy Hours
, was the original inspiration for all the Happy Hours
so beloved by gastronomic establishments around the world. The dance is certainly gay and cheerful enough and well in keeping with the diaphanously-clad classic beauties lightly tripping barefoot through the meadow as depicted on the cover of the original sheet music. The dance itself is a straightforward composition in AAABB form with a 2-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude between the AA and A strains. I particularly enjoy the 8-bar interlude with its dialogue between the basses and tenors - a little moment to keep an ensemble on its toes!
